2016 Columbia 13-Black, NW JamboreeColumbia 13-Black has made steady progress all season, but they took a huge leap forward this weekend at the NW Jamboree. In their first pool, Columbia's youngest team knocked off a team and forced a three-way tie for 2nd in the pool. Columbia was the team to advance from that pool by ONE POINT, (Proving once again what all our coaches teach about every point matters.) In their second pool, the girls of 13-Black knocked off the (at that time) #1 team in the entire 14 Challenge Division, and again forced the tournament staff to get out their pool tie-breaking rules. Once again, Columbia advanced from the tie-breaking, to join the 14 Challenge Platinum bracket. Columbia 13-Black climbed all the way to the Championship Semifinal match, finishing 3rd in the 22-team 14 Challenge field. (Highest finish by a U-13 team in the 14 Challenge field.)
